Judith Beck Blaufrankisch, biodynamic, lively, fresh and very approachable natural red from Austria. This is a great example of how Austrian wines can have both finesse and drinkability, a deliciously light red made from Blaufrankish that really packs a punch with flavour. Dark cherry red, with a bright nose of blackberry fruit and a smooth, supple palate. The tannins are soft and the finish is spicy and fruity, not at all funky. We were recently lucky enough to be visited by her at our shop in Settle and we were really struck by the aromatic qualities of her wines. Despite her very calm and collected personality, her wines are electric and lively. The fermentation is natural in large wood barrels, and the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation. Enjoy on its own or most food.

Winery Judith Beck is in Gols in Burgenland. They are a 15 hectare estate and have been working using biodynamics since 2007. The philosophy is one born of attention to detail and respect for the environment and their native grapes and soil. Judith Beck herself studied abroad at places like Cos d'Estournel in Bordeaux and Errazuriz in Chile but returned home to take over from her father and take the winery forward embracing the new wave of natural wine making.

'Biodynamics is an art of healing which takes advantage of the holistic curativeness of nature. It aims at strengthening the natural resistance of the plant. Pest and disease control are mainly affected in a prophylactic manner. We encourage the formation of humus, as a basis of healthy soils, by regularly applying cattle manure which we prepare ourselves and by cultivating grass between the rows. Herbal teas (such as stinging nettle, chamomile, field horsetail … ) and biodynamic field sprays such as horn manure and horn silica are used under the consideration of moon rhythms; their purpose being to strengthen resistance and further the physiological ripeness of grapes. It is our foremost aim to produce authentic wines with an individual aroma profile while at the same time maintaining healthy soil and vines. Part of this is also the absence of unnatural yeasts.' - Judith Beck

These are sentiments and ideas we like at Buon Vino and the wines are really delicious, fresh and also great value for money.


2Reviews For Judith Beck Blaufrankisch 2016

  1. How good is this wine?


    It says it all in the description for this wine; really delicious, fresh and also great value for money. To add to that its packed with fruit and some complexity. The consensus after the first couple of sips was this would be perfect for Christmas dinner; it should hold its own and work well with the cranberry sauce.
    5 stars, also had the JB Ink Zweigelt, also delicious but this one was more fruity and approachable

  2. How good is this wine?


    I loved the Judith Beck Ink Zweigelt, so I was excited to try this - if you're looking for something a bit lighter but still fruity it's this.
